The Maui News, published at Wailuku,! Hawaiian Is
lands, by Geo. 13. Robertson, a Democratic light while
in Siskiyou, now issues u supplemental Republican
edition, which is edited by the Republican party of
that section, and supports Roosevelt and Fairbanks.
The paper, however, appears to bo independent, so far
as Robertson controls Yreka, Cal. Journal.
jC This is rather a hard jolt from Brother Nixon, who for the past
forty years has published a staunch republican journal at Yreka,
but what is an old ex-confed to do? There is no democratic party on
Maui, and the few democrats here have been swallowed by Billy
White and the home rule party. The experience of Maui with the
home-rule legislature and the home-rule county officials still gives
one the cold sweats, when remembered and reviewed. The rep
ublican party, as it exists on Maui, 6tands for all that we most need,
and the republican candidates are men on whom we can rely. With
us down here it is not a cuestion of national politics, but rather a
struggle between enlightened advancement on the one hand and
faction-led ignorance on the other- The News will vote straight
republican this fall, and earnestly advises all its readers to follow
j5 It is creditable on the part of the government officials to de
sire to employ none but citizen labor on public works, and if the
situation demanded such a course, no other would be excusable
But on Maui the conditions are averse to this course. Every Maui
citizen who can or will work has no trouble in fiuding work, and
prefers a steady job to desultory work on roads and other public
improvements. Consequently on Maui, as well as on the other Is
lands when a contractor takes a job it is extremely difficult to secure
citizens labor, and sometimes practicably impossible to do so, as
illustrated by the Wilson & Duggan contract on Maui. Such being
the conditions, the government should realize that a new policy
should be formulated which will allow the employment of the neces
sary alien labor so that the public interests will be properly served"
SR The visit of Governor Carter to Maui has been an .extremely
educational one not only to the Governor and other officials in his
' party, but also to the people of Maui, all of whom have had the full
est opportunity to meet and confer with the government officials as
to the different needs of our Island. Much needed work will be
pushed at once, and where appropriations have proved insufficient,
the legislators from Maui will have less trouble in securing the
money needed for proper improvements. One of the things most
need on Maui are more and better roads, and after his hard horse
back ride over our rough trails through lands which are only await
ing good roads to be developed into profitable farming areas, Gov
ernor Carter will doubtless recommend in hl3 message to the next
legislature such appropriations as may be needed.

a lively guessing contest True, the Japanese have been winners
so far, both on land and sea, but their victories have cost them so
Hear in men and money that it is now becoming a question' as to
' how long "they can continue their victorious campaign before they
(- exhaust their credit and resources. Had Port Arther fallen a
month ago, history would have been vastly different, and it does
not seem sure that Port Arthur will be reduced shortly, if at all this
year. The rigors of a semi-arctic winter will soon pervade the
scene of war, and practically tie up operations till the approach of
spring. If Japan does not capture Port Arthur and bag Kuropat
kin shortly, things are liable to go hard with the little brown men.
3( Politics in Honolulu are becoming somewhat variegated, Cecil
Brown's annoucement that he will run independent, and the action
ojE the democratic party in offering him a seat at their love feast by
leaving a vacant place on their senatorial ticket are the first indica
tions of an interesting mix-up. The Advertiser is lukewarm in its
advocacy of some of the republican nominees. This is all wrong,
from a party standpoint, and the truth is that the Islands cannot
well stand the consequences of a republican defeat this fall, hence
it is to' be hoped that things will straighten out in the metropolis
before election day.
' & The conservation of the waters of Maui by means of big ditch

teem with luxuriant crop. The soil and climate of Maui is most
peculiarly adapted to agriculture, and water is the one thing need
ed to make our dry and barren' hillsides blossom like the rose.
$C There are thousands of acres of land between Ulupalakua and
Huelo which are well adapted to the growth of pineapples and now
th'at the Haiku Fruit & Packing Co. have demonstrated the success
of th'19 indutry. those owning such lands should carefully investi
gate the matter, and interview the officers of the H. F. & P. Co. for
the purpose of ascertaing upon what terms contracts could be ob
tained for the raising and selling of pineapples.
JJS 75 Kihel, $12.50. So reads a recent Honolulu stock sale report,
and its reading will awako some sweet and some bitter recollections,
Kihei was horribly overstocked when it was floated, and thre were
lotjs of suckers in Honolulu about that time, but the little plantation
is pulling out all right, and with he big water ditch to draw from it
should pay regular dividends after this year if sugar keeps up to
fair price. . ........ , v '
Canning SctRa Qoma.
On Wednesday of las week the
Haiku Fruit & Packing Co. finished
its first seasons's run, the output
being about 2000 cases of canned pine
apples and a large amount of piue-
apples jelly, and of which will be
shipped on the next Nevadan.
For several years past Mr. D. D.
Baldwin has been raising fine crops
of high grade pineapples at Haiku,
and last year the Haiku Fruit & Pack
ing Co. was organized to cultivate and
can pines on a largo scale in the Hai
ku District. A complete plant for
manufacturing cans and canning
pines was bought and put in operation
at Haiku. in July of this year,' the
erago daily capacity of which is about
10,000 pines per day at present,
but with easy facilities to increase
the daily output as the supply of
This summer s run was compar
atively short, as the large area of
young pines planted bj the Company
will not mature before next year.
There will bo a winter's crop this
year which will not be canned, as it
is found more profitable to ship the
raw pines to a winter market on the
Coast. Next summer the canning
season will be longer, and the output
much larger. There is much available
pineapple land adjacent to Haiku be
sides that controlled by the Company
and as they propose to make rery
liberal long term contracts, there is
no doubt but that hi a few years many
land owners in the vicinity of the can'
nery will make contracts and furnish
the cannery with uu immense amount
of pines, as is done at Era, Pearl City
and Wahiawa, Oaliu.
i4)e..process of converting a raw
pine into a. canned one is. a brief but
interesting one. Tho two nds of the
pine are cut off, and the fruit is ap
plied to a species of turning lathe
which removes the husk and outer
impurities, leaving a plump, fat ball
of pure pine. This is run. through a
cylinder for the purpose of reducing
it to a proper size. The core is then
punched out by a mechanical device
which performs the operation neatly.
The pine next passes through another
cylinder whence it emerges sliced for
the can. Those slices which are bro
ken, or are too small are cut into
small cubes or blocks and. are also
canned. The trimmings ' are the
smaller pieces pass through a grater,
and are also canned, so that there are
three grades of exactly the same
quality, differing only in iza. The
first are known as sliced - pineapples,
the tecoud as pineapple tidbits and
the third as grated pineapple. As
fast as these caus are filled the tot b
rimmed on and they are plunged in
hot water for the needed cooking pro
cess, at which stage all th cans which
are not airtight are jrejeoted. The
cans are then treated to a laquerlng
process to prevent rust, and are la
beled according to their grades with
the handsomely designed labels adopt
ed tne (Jompany. The labels are all
marked "Roval Hawaiian",' and con
tain the Hawaiian coat of arms and
a handsomely pictured plueapple..
Differently lettered labels are used to
designate the grades and distinguish
the sliced, grated and tidbit output.
In addition to the canned fruit, a
large quantity of delicious . pineapple
jelly is turned out which will doubtless
capture the Coast market, At the
cannery is in the close vicinity of large
guava forests, a large quantity of
guava jelly of high grade is also being
turned out. The Company will not
use gelatine or any other foreign sub
stance, in their jellies, and 54 r. W. A.
Baldwin, the manager, states that it
is the intention of the- Company to
put up only a pure-article, so that the
word "Royal Hawaiian" on a can of
pinei r -a glass of jelly will be a
guariataa of its- absolute purity.
The jeople of Haiku are to be con
gratulated on the advent of tbli new
ndustry, and other districts lathe
same belt will' doubtless follow the fx-
150 pick and shovel citizen laborers.
